OpenSUSE Wireless :: WiFi Printer Mode Off In Yast With Firewall
May 5, 2011
I have WiFi printer, HP DeskJet F4500. If suse firewall is on, yast doesn't see that printer. If I turn firewall off, Yast sees printer and install it just fine. Problem is, that when i start firawall again, yast denies whole printer and turn it off mode in Yast. What firewall rule i have to make to get this work?
after trying several pci and usb network cards none were able to have their ssid broadcasted. The question that i have is: Can a suse box be converted to act as an acces point without the use of atheros based hardware, without switching over to ubuntu and or debian, without the use of openwrt?
how to open firewall ports without using yast. The reason I'm asking is because I'm working on a .sh script for the installation of a couple of programs. Some ports need to be open for the programs to work, I find it really annoying to go to yast and type the ports manually every time. I've looked at /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 but can't seem to find anything, I also know that after the changes I will have to stop start the firewall by running:
I'm looking forward to the release of openSUSE 11.4, which I'm looking to install as an Internet facing gateway on a mini-ITX machine with 2 Ethernet cards. As such I've been reading up on the YaST Firewall trying to find out to configure it, and there's one thing I'd like to be able to do: 'stealth' all the firewall ports.
In other words, if someone were to hypothetically do a port scan of my external IP address, I would rather they not know whether any of the ports on my gateway are open or closed, so instead of replying with the status of those ports the packets get dropped. I've been able to do this with a product called Astaro Security Gateway, which I currently have installed on a second hand Dell Optiplex machine, but I am now looking into the possibility of installing this as a virtual machine inside an openSUSE 11.4 host (extra level of security) and would like the same functionality for the host OS.
This morning I was configuring a DNS server through Yast at home, I've done it once before (in another wireless lan)and it works perfectly. But this morning, after I clicked "start dns server now", everything freezed, and caps lock light on keyboard kept flashing. I rebooted laptop,it couldn't boot into run level-5 and there were few "skipped" items and "failed" items displayed.... Sorry I'm new to linux so I re-installed it this afternoon, and kept /home partition, formatted / partition.
Everything seems to be fine after re-installation, again I tried configuring a DNS server and clicked "start dns server now", but the same problem appeared, caps lock light kept flashing and I rebooted the laptop but fortunately this time it didn't fail on any items when booting
In Yast-Network Settings, I choose "use controlled with network manager", and I can connect to wireless router and browsing web, but there are no any interfaces shown in Yast-Firewall, and this time, after I clicked "start dns server now", nothing happens, dns server just won't start...
My Epson Stylus D88 Plus parallel connection is not detected in the Yast -> Hardware -> Printer installation utility, while the driver is supported in the OpenSUSE 11.4 stable version ? Ok when this printer is connected to USB port.
I use openSUSE 11.1 since quite a bit and I frequently use YAST (not as root of course). However, since the problems I have to deal with while trying to install WiFi internet access I meet the following problem. I call YAST, get the small authentication screen, I give the right password, which seems to be recognized as such, but I never see YAST appearing. So I can't manage neither my hardware, nor my software.
what I need to do to the firewall in order to make a shared printer available to other machines on my network?
I have the printer set up and have tested it with the firewall switched off, but as soon as I restart the firewall, the printer is inaccessible.
I thought that all traffic on the internal network was allowed, but it seems that I need to create an explicit rule in order to get the shared printer working. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to figure out how to do that yet.
I am trying to configure a wireless connection from YAST under the Network Settings tool.It doesn't seem to do anything. My USB wifi device is detected in YAST > Hardware and I am using the module it says Hardware is using. It doesn't seem to save the module under YAST> Network Settings> Network Card Setup. Is this tool broken or useless? It seems setting up WiFi should be easier than this. YAST should work shouldn't it?
I have a Belkin F5D8055au USB wireless adapter which I can't configure in YAST. I have downloaded the RT2870sta driver from RALink and compiled it - seemed to be ok. Modprobe loads it ok. Some info:
When I open network settings in YAST my wired (ethernet) card shows up but not the USB. If I manually add a wireless card, I can't select the kernel module from the drop down list - there is nothing in it. At that point I abort YAST. So, how do I convince YAST that there really is a USB wireless adapter connected?
Printer is connected via USB to server PC running OpenSUSE 11.1 Client PCs are running 11.1, XP, Vista No problem printing from the Windoze machines
Printing is trouble free with the 11.1 client's firewall disabled, but no printer is available with firewall running.
In hopes of diagnosing the problem I figured I'd open everything I could think of until the printer remained available with the firewall running. Then I planned to start removing exceptions one at a time 'til removing one caused the printer to disappear.
I've gone to Yast>Security and Users>Firewall>Allowed Services>External Zone and tried addingSamba Server NetBIOS server Samba Client Samba Server VNC
I have a Canon PIXMA MG5250 stand alone wifi printer thats connected to all my windows computers and laptops. Now I want to install a computer with Ubuntu 10.10 and connect this printer also wireless by wifi.
I'm having a wireless issue (go figure) where I can't get to the internet, can get to my LAN just fine, but trying to ping anywhere on the net just gives me "network unavailable" message.One thing I've seen noted here time and again is people saying "Use Yast vs Network manager" when I go through the Yast Network Devices GUI it tells me it's using network manager, and I need to use ifup (if I want to use Yast), however I have no clue how to go about changing it from one to the other?
Currently I'm using hard-link to get all the updates and see if that will resolve my problems, but figured I'd learn how I'm supposed to switch it for the future.
This is a mutation of; Help, my wireless .... I read the stickies and hope to provide enough info. Because we had problems getting a Linksys device working (it worked, but after that it failed) on openSUSE 11.3, my friend (the system owner) bought a Eminent EM4554 Wifi 150N forgetting to ask me to look in the HCL. On looking through the Eminent web-site I discovered they have a Linux tarball for it, but I prefer to look for an openSUSE ready solution first. The tarball showed that it is about a Ralink RT2870 chipset.
lsusb: Code: Bus 002 Device 002: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. I added the download.opensuse.org/repositories/driver:/wireless/openSUSE_11.3/ and the update of that repos. On starting YaST > Software > Software Management it offered several packages for installation that all seemed related to this subject and came from those repos, so I installed them. I did not install the ralink-firmware package because that warned that it would remove the kernel-firmware package.
I installed SuSE 11.2 on my laptop (its wireless and connects to the internet) and am have trouble getting my wireless HP Deskjet j4680 to be found. I tried the printer options as root, but it does not give you an opertunity to select a wireless device to connect too. Does anyone know where I can download software for this. I tried HP, no luck.
I suspect this is an initial configuration bug. All firewall logs seem to be going to all three files. That causes a lot of clutter in the log files, and makes it difficult to see whether there are any serious problems being logged.
Installed here with Yast epson stylus sx wireless printer and printing via cable works fine just can not print via wifi. I am aware that CUPS should be running and I see them in Yast->services running however I can not add from
Yast --> Firewall --> Allowed Services --> Services to Allow --> Cups because there is no Cups in dropdown list. Also have these
Code: Connection http://localhost:631/9100 set but when I log in /localhost:631/9100/printers.
Code: Paused - "Destination printer does not exist!" printer works as I have tried print from windows. Could the missing cups in firewall be an issue or something else? But I turned off firewall with rcSuSEfirewall2 stop status shows firewall is off and still cant print.
I have an Eee PC 1005 dual-booting Windows 7 and openSUSE 11.3. Everything is nice and polished except for one thing.The first tweak I made to the system was the kernel parameter "acpi=Linux" which made the Fn keys work. Then I installed eee-control from the openSUSE Build Service, which worked very well (I was getting a bit frustrated; the source would build and install, but eee-control-daemon would immediately die. Anyway.).
My problem is that when I press the Fn-F2 combo to disable wifi, all mention of wifi completely vanishes from the tray applet. Even when I press Fn-F2 again to turn the radio back on (and the light does cycle like it does in Windows), it is gone. I need to reboot with the radio on, then it works perfectly again, until I press Fn-F2 again.
I've got a Suse 11.2 laptop with a bluetooth Wifi device (recognised and working), and an Android 2.1 smartphone (Motorola Milestone). I would like to connect the two via Wifi. I don't have a Wifi router, I've just used it now and again through hotspots. I normally connect to the internet via a mobile broadband USB dongle.So, I suppose I need to configure my laptop as a Wifi router in order to set up our little private LAN between the two devices. Is that right? If yes, can someone please point me to a relevant howto because I've searched high and low and didn't find anything. :-(If the above is not right, then where should I look, please? Is it possible at all, actually?
I've been reading up on how to get the Broadcom BCM4312 802.11b/g on my Dell Inspiron 1525 to work with OpenSUSE and I've tried everything, I've even re-installed the OS 3 times as I seemed to keep screwing something up. I've tried doing what it says in this thread Install Broadcom Drivers from Packman I thought I'd installed the write drivers with this code: Code: zypper in broadcom-wl broadcom-wl-kmp-default
I've installed opensuse 11.3 few days ago on my laptop, and it seems after kernel update, wifi refuses to work. I'm using gnome and after the update the iwlagn module was not present in the 'ifup'. So i run modprobe iwlagn and here is the output.
I currently have a WiFi network at home that serves two PC's, a Laptop (all SUSE 11.3) and a couple of WiFi radios. I also use IPCop as the Firewall. The system currently uses 802.11g, but the PC's and Laptop really struggle to achieve any reasonable internet data speeds, particularly as their RF range to the Wireless Router is very disappointing, so I have a couple Wireless Access Points. Unfortunately, whilst these WAPs might slightly improve RF coverage, connecting to the Router via one of them only serves to slow down the internet upload and download speeds even further. (Not much point in paying for expensive 4M internet access if I am only achieving a typical download of 500-600k!)
I want to completely replace my 802.11g with 802.11n - to both improve range and throughput. I'm looking at the 'Netgear Range Max Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router' as this also has 2.4GHz (my WiFI radios are only 2.4GHz compatible). Unless, of course, anyone has any good reason to recommend I DON'T purchase it? My problem is that I am struggling to find up to date, accurate information that can advise me on which 802.11n (2.4GHz and 5GHz) PCI cards, PCMCIA and USB Adapters are compatible with SUSE.
I have installed Suse 11.4 recently and I'm trying to run the wireless connection and doesn't works. Details: card: pro/wireless 2200BG Calexico2 driver installed (as console said) kernel driver:ipw2200 hwinfo:
I have tried to connect by traditional method with YAST, just recognized one network call "Hotel Riga 228", but doesn't connect. Also I have tried to connect with Network Manager but this application doesn't recognize ANY w. network.
